Come check out this week’s batch of Kickstarter and crowdfunding highlights!

We Die Young – RPG

A spiritual sequel to Bloat Game’s 1980s-based RPG, DARK PLACES & DEMOGORGONS, WE DIE YOUNG is set in Seattle in the 1990s during the grunge and alternative music counter-culture movements.  Seattle became the epicenter of popular culture and began attracting musicians, artists, and supernatural creatures from all over.  This game is heavily inspired by the music of Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, and many more.

In WE DIE YOUNG, you play as 20-something humans, Vampires, Werebeasts, Mummies, Fey and Fairies, and multiple other types of supernatural creatures and character classes.  Each creature and character class has its unique history and abilities. Created by Eric Bloat & Josh Palmer, WE DIE YOUNG is a standalone roleplaying game and does not require any additional gaming material to play. 

Pledges start at $24 for a print copy plus PDF.

The Cyberpunk Red: Combat Zone Core Game is the perfect entry point into playing battles across the urban sprawl of Night City. The Core Game includes everything you need to jump into the action: complete rules, over a hundred game cards, two full gangs, plus enough scenery to create a Night City battlescape. Cyberpunk Red: Combat Zone is the first game to feature the new [RE]action system: an easy-to-learn set of skirmish rules with fast-paced, high-stakes tabletop action.

Lost Empires: War for the New Sun

Earth is in disarray. Torn apart by war and its people oppressed by large corporations, the disparity between rich and poor is the greatest in human history. Dust storms decimate crops and massive areas of the earth are made inhospitable by nuclear fallout. War and oppression have led to alliances throughout the globe and after many years, four prominent powers rose: The Scion Imperium, Terra Corp, the Neo Human Republic, and the Feng.

Lost Empires: War for the New Sun is a fast-paced card game that rewards patience and precise strategy with powerful opportunities to initiate an attack. With the unique command system and varying actions, every decision the player makes is crucial in controlling the objectives in efforts to reap the most alien artifacts to build your wormgate and crush your enemies faction.
